Book Discussion

Join us for a discussion of Lost Buxton by Rachelle Chase. Through vintage photos and quotes by former residents and newspaper articles, Lost Buxton tells the story of Buxton, Iowa, an unincorporated coal mining town established by Consolidation Coal Company in 1900. At a time when Jim Crow laws and segregation kept blacks and whites separated throughout the nation, Buxton was integrated. African American and Caucasian residents lived, worked, and went to school side by side.
